PARAMOUNT CARTOONS ROCK
Yes, this one is a little "cutesy." Consider the social mores of the times. Little girls were supposed to be "nice" and not necessarily "heroes," right? There is some real kitschy stuff in here like the singing geese and cow, Humpty Dumpty being played by a cartoon version of Edward G. Robinson. Hey, it doesn't get much better than that. And when you throw in the Paramount artistry, voila!

POMO KULTUR WAR
Audrey is reading a comic in school, presented as a nice little text within a text. The comic is about two excruciatingly well designed crooks, the zuit-suited sharpie, Pin Head, and his sidekick Birdbrain who has a hole in the side of his head with a mean little bird inside! Audrey wants to read the comic because it is NOW, hip, happening. Made to sit in the corner with what she is ordered to read, Mother Goose, she falls asleep and enters a dreamtext based on a happening, postmodern Jazz oriented Mother Gooseland (high in the clouds) with a gorgeous hepcat Mother Goose. But in a piece of intertextual brilliance, Pin Head and Bird Brain show up, and Audrey, must now defends the world of Mother Goose, indignantly saying 'they don't belong here', and she ejects them after a violent struggle that unfortunately wakes her up. But reality too has been interpenetrated, as Bird Brain's little intracranial bird, shows up in Audrey's hair. (Having moved from the comic book, to the dream world and then to 'reality'!!- now that is one amazing little bird). It all ends with Audrey's Zarathustrian laughter at this final brilliant gag.
That's enough for any cartoon, but there is plenty more, like the little Bo Peep incident, or when Audrey's little classmate Johnny recites Mother Goose.
I don't like to get too postmodern on you, but this one just demands it, it's conceptually brilliant, perfectly executed, and extremely entertaining too.

Goofy is right
Though Im starting to be a big supporter of Paramounts cartoons, this one is on the very fine line of being dumb dumb. Audrey is made to sit in the corner because she was reading a pulp comic story (which looked rather cool_ then the Mother Goose book. She is forced to read the Mother Goose story in the corner, and that makes her fall asleep where of course shes whisked to another land..
I have no idea why the Mother Goose Land is uh, Jazz tinged, but it makes it less believable. Nice Frank Sinatra tribute though. The story is wobbly, the animation is wobbly, really, this was not too pleasant to watch.
That, and the theme song sucked.

Little Audrey meets Chester Gould?
This is great in every aspect.
I especially like the stylized designs of the villians. I'm assuming the were inspired by Dick Tracy's rogues.
What a great cartoon! Little Audry,sort of like a young Cindi Lauper, reads a crime comic when she should be reading her Mother Goose nursery rhymes. Sent to the dunce's corner she is transported to Mother Goose Land where she hooks up with a hip Mother Goose who takes her on a flying tour of her territory. They both flip over a Frank Sinatra look- alike ,and dig the crazy scat of Little Boy Tom as well as a cameo by Edward G. Robinson .It's crazy, man, crazy!
